Visit to Mexico (sort of)

February 12, 2013 Leave a comment

For the last several years, we have been having our dental work done in Progresso, Mexico.  This town is right across the border, and is very popular with “winter Texans”.  The dentist we use is US trained and certified, the staff speaks English, and bottled water is used.  And, since the costs are very low — about 1/5th of USA costs —  they are very popular.

We went today to accompany our friends Les and Ida.  Les was having some pretty major work done, so we offered some support and company.  We went further into Mexico than normal, and shopped at some of the tourist traps.  Here are some pictures.
